Shaker Heights Public Library issues Greater Access library cards, which allow you to borrow material from participating CLEVNET member libraries and the Cuyahoga County Public Library, subject to individual library policies.
To prevent loss of library material and to protect you from fraudulent use of your card, you must present your library card or a valid form of government-issued photo ID for each transaction.
Please note that you are responsible for all material checked out on your card, and if material is returned late, damaged, or lost, you are responsible for paying fines or replacement fees. If fines and fees total $15 or more, you will not be allowed to borrow material.
Library cards are issued free of charge to anyone who resides, owns property, works, or attends school in Ohio. Adults age 18 and over must present a government-issued photo ID and proof of a current Ohio address.
Temporary residents must provide both permanent and temporary or school addresses. Out-of-state students attending an institution of higher learning in Ohio must provide their permanent and their college addresses, as well as a student ID.
Juvenile cards are issued to minors under 18 and require the signature of a parent or legal guardian, who must be present at the time of application, provide a government-issued photo ID and proof of a current Ohio address, and assume responsibility for all activity (including payment of all fines and fees incurred) on the card. Non-parental custodians must show proof of guardianship.
If you wish to restrict your child from borrowing movies, you may choose to do so as part of the library card application process.
Lost, Stolen, or Damaged Cards
Please report lost or stolen library cards to library staff immediately. You are responsible for all material checked out on your card up to the time that you tell us that your card was lost or stolen. You may request a replacement for a lost or stolen card in person at the library. Badly damaged or worn cards will be replaced, free of charge, upon request.
